The Glamour of Italian fashion exhibition at the V&A

Hello all! I'm currently on half term, where I get a week off school but I have to spend that week revising for exams. I'm actually really ill at the moment, so I have done barely any revision and the only thing my mind can focus on is episodes of Sherlock and '80s movies. Speaking of which I have found the greatest jacket known to man which totally reminds me of John Cusack's  signature jacket in Say Anything. I was clearing out our spare bedroom and found it at the back of  a wardrobe. It's a vintage jacket from the '80s that was my mum's (although she is never getting it back). It is such an amazing shape and I never want to take it off. 






Jacket - Vintage
Jumper - really old 
Skirt - I wore in a dance show last year and kept it because I really loved the colour
Boots - Thrifted
Bag (on my back) - Kanken
Dolphin choker - really really old

Recently I went to the Glamour of Italian fashion exhibition at the V&A. The V&A is my favourite museum in London and there are always new things going on there.  They had pieces that were in films in the '50s and '60s in Hollywood when Italian fashion was worn by people such as Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor. They also have pieces by Italian fashion houses such as Pucci, Valentino, Versace, Missoni, Prada and Miu Miu. All the clothes were so beautiful and daring. The exhibition was amazing and I really recommend going.

  1. I love this so much, especially what you said about the say anything jacket. I'm a huge fan of the colour scheme within this, it's so nice and pastely and summery.

  4. I luuuve the skirt, and the jacket. I actually never heard about the V&A, but it sounds more than fantastic. Maybe it's because I live in Belgium, and on moments like this I wish to live in London
